Everywhere I go I see You…

All creation displays the glory of God. I’m seeing the glory of God in many places; in sunsets, in my beautiful wife, in a father’s unconditional love, in my unbreakable love for my daughter, and most lately in a friend who is very conformed to the image of Christ. All of these are God’s creation, and as such they display His glory as He has designed them to do so.

Some glimpses of His glory as seen in His creation are too marvelous for words. During those times when I behold His glory in His varied displays of His majesty my heart overflows with joy unspeakable. Tonight was one of those times.

Like John the Baptist leaped in his mothers womb when Mary, pregnant with Jesus, entered the room, so my heart leaps with joy at this friendship with one of Jesus’ disciples. If my heart can be so impacted by some of God’s children - then what will it be like to be with Jesus for eternity? If my circuits are nearly overloaded by the glory of Christ that I encounter in His people and His creation oh what eternal and unspeakable joy must await His people who will have the infinitely priceless treasure of knowing Him more and enjoying Him more forever.

1Co 2:9 However, as it is written: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him"—

My heart with thankfulness does overflow
That Your dear mercy and glory I may know
Words fail me to speak of You adequately
I find myself desiring You ever increasingly
You are breathtakingly majestic and beautiful
May I enjoy You to the absolute limits possible
May the veil You pull forever away
That in visions of Your glory I might ever stay

One of Rich’s songs is especially pertinent to this: “I see You.”

For a sample of the studio version of this awesome song click here and then click on the song entitled "I see You." Although this video is a little rough, this song is one of my all time favorites!

I think that it was you who introduced me to Rich Mullins' music many years ago. He's still one of my favorites.
